Ross Kemp wants to return to EastEnders
Ross Kemp would like to return to EastEnders in the future.
The Grant Mitchell actor returned for two short stints this year, firstly for the death of his on-screen mother Peggy Mitchell (Barbara Windsor) and secondly to help his nephew Ben (Harry Reid) out of a scrape with some homophobes.
Speaking on Good Morning Britain on Wednesday (September 21), he confirmed he would be open to making more guest stints in the future.
He said: “Yeah of course I would, yeah, why not. If I got the opportunity to make documentaries and to act, why not do both?”
He also revealed it was tough going back to his gig as the Walford hard man, and he was “nervous” about how he would be received. Grant has not been a regular on the show since 1999, but also appeared for a guest stint during 2005.
He said: “I was quite nervous going back actually, there was a bit more expectation.
“When I first started, when I was 25 years old, a long time ago, no expectation. Now, you’ve hopefully got something to live up to.”
After the initial worry, however, Kemp said he thoroughly enjoyed returning to Albert Square.
“I loved going back [to EastEnders]. They say a change is as good as a break and one moment I was in Mongolia going down a coal mine meeting Nazis and then three days later I was in the dressing room at Elstree.”
We’ll keep our fingers crossed for a Grant Mitchell return hopefully not to far in the future then!
